You Might Have a Project Boat If...

At the risk of some painful poking fun...

You might have a project boat if...

- You build a permanent deck around it on the hard
- You have a mast but just don't know where it is right now
- You don't have any sails but that is OK, they are last on the "to-do" list
- Your tools needed list is longer than your to-do list

others?

You have hoses and wires sticking out of places you never knew existed.

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

When you tell people when it was built they say "When!!??"

When you tell people which boat is yours and they say: "oh" and then just sorta walk away.

Steel costs $.90 a pound. You bought 40,000 pounds of it for $.14... do the math.

You might have a project boat if it's stored on the hard, and yet you're STILL afraid it is going to sink.

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

- You are 2 years into your 3 month circumnavigation preparation...
- You are considering pulling out the wiring you put in because the AYBC specs have changed since then
- While you are at it maybe change those oil lamps for incandescent or even this new fangled LED stuff I hear tell about
- When you installed the batteries there was only one type - they had screw tops and distilled water

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

When there is more water in the boat than around it.

when people ask if that is going to be a new artifical reef some where.

when you have a washing machine permantly mounted on the deck.

when the only signs of life are birds and bird droppings all over the boat.

I think we are getting project boats confused with dock queens, although they aren't mutually exclusive.

You might have a project boat if *you wish* your boat could be a dock queen.

Re: You Might Have a Project Boat If...

- When someone at the club mentions changing their sheets and you are thinking about plywood
- Someone mentions a "sail" this weekend and you ask if the destination is West Marine or Defender
